The egx Charter

egx supports innovation in tech education because it is the foundation from which systemic social problems can be solved. Tech-ed for egx means both how information is taught and learned in the classroom as well as how people acquire information as lifelong learners.

Education

The tech space has fostered impactful, innovative teaching methods we believe can one day reshape how we teach and learn in all disciplines. We aim to bolster organizations that develop and implement creative, groundbreaking programs in tech-ed that have a lasting impact on students. Our nonprofit is discerning about what programs we choose to support. Merely teaching tech is not enough; we seek programs and innovations that change the way students think and learn about the modern world.

Since learning doesn’t begin or end in the classroom, egx also strives to build a strong tech community that includes those new to tech and experienced professionals. Whether bringing leaders of the tech industry to Phoenix or sponsoring participants in trade conferences, egx enables tech denizens to learn from each other and other disciplines.

Humanizing Metrics

Data has its uses and its place, but ultimately tells a story about humans, whether as individuals or a collective whole. Unfortunately, the lessons those stories offer are often lost when organizations make decisions based solely on empirical data that is unable to account for the human variable. Ultimately, the result is a repository of data that has fails to solve the problem it was gathered to address.

Through a targeted research initiative egx aims to develop a goal-oriented data acquisition methodology that goes beyond metrics to achieve humanitarian solutions.

Humanitarian Software

The full potential of global access to information has yet to be fulfilled. With an eye towards the future, egx is building on over a decade of work to develop Nebula, a software demonstration that shows how to integrate various distributed protocols for strong digital identity, data synchronization, and human curation of data. We believe the internet can be more safe, organized, reliable, and promote deep thinking.
